By Wayne Harada
Advertiser Entertainment Editor

Hideki Saijo, a veteran Japanese performer, will give a concert at 8 p.m. Sunday in the Hawaii Ballroom of the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.

The concert marks his 30th anniversary in show business.

Saijo, 45, was discovered while singing in a Hiroshima coffee bar and emerged as a star of recordings, movies, television and stage.

Among his hit songs are "Koi Susu Kisetsu," "Jonetsu No Arashi," "Ichiman Konen No Ai" and "In Search of Love" (a duet with Barry Manilow). His latest single is "Bailamos (Tonight We Dance)."

He played the leading role in a samurai series on Japan TV, "Tokugawa Burai-Cho." His stage musical credits run the gamut from "Waga Seishun No Hokuheki" to "They’re Playing Our Song."

His films include "Gendai Ninkyo Den" and "The Hit Man."

He has frequently performed on the Japan Broadcasting Corp.’s New Year’s favorite, "Kohaku Uta Gassen," the annual red vs. white (women vs. men) television musical spectacular.

Tickets: $95 and $50, on sale at Hakubundo, Sheraton entertainment desk and Ticket Plus outlets, including most Foodland and Sack ’N Save stores, the University of Hawaii Campus Center, House of Music Ala Moana Center and JCB Plaza. Charge by phone: 526-4400.
